    With a medium overclock yes. The H60 (stock fan) is audible but not really loud in the first place.

    H60 is a rad with high density fans while the H80i on the other hand is low density so they work better with low speed fans, my choice would have been easily made. Also running a 3930K with full clock/voltage with a room temp of 30° & [email protected], the water temp really really gets hot and that's why I prefer low speed rads. While the max water temp is 50°, I don't really have a lot of room to play with above 4.6GHz to still maintain silence >.<

    so i've finally managed to get everything up and running in my new place.
    new desk, additional screen (dell u2711) and headphones(takstar HI2050) since the last update.


    next stop , new case and likely watercooling in the very near future

    Finally managed to upgrade my audio to a Sennheiser 363D + Creative Sound Blaster Z. The headset came with a 7.1 Dolby surround adapter but I gave it to my wife.

    ...I'm officially a Sennheiser fanboy.

    Thanks! I am quite happy with how my case turned out, spent the long weekend painting it. I really like the look of the motherboard I have in there (I am a sucker for orange!) but I could use a little more cable management, I was in a bit of a rush to get the gtx 780 in there and see how she performed. (which is excellent)

    I am so tempted to save up for a new windforce card, the new revision of the cooler is such an improvement on the last one (even just aesthetically).

    mine are likely for sale soon
    they are decent but really need to be in a proper case and not in SLI.

    I'll add them to the long list of "things I don't really need but really want but can't afford right now"

    You going back to a Titan then? Or are you waiting for the 9970 with its rumoured 4096 shader processors?

    likely 780 classifieds hydrocoppers or lightnings with custom blocks. current cards are good but i'm still voltage limited for maximum overclock. (
    maybe another swap if AMD really gets their shit together but i deem that unlikely.

    I don't know what miraculous thing you're expecting Shroud... though I hope you realize that there HAS to be a voltage lock. GPU chips can only go so far.

    Like the GTX 560 Ti is highly advised to not be pushed past 1.1v.

    You may just be at the very edge, honestly. You should just accept it, you have nice cards, and the 1% performance improvement you'll get, MAYBE, is not worth the trouble.

    Pretty sure like all GTX 780s are hard capped to 1.212v.

    I think we can put shroudster in the enthausiast department, so he probably doesnt really care about the performance increases And I get why you want to change to different 780s when you are considering to make a custom watercool setup.

    which tbh is what you want as long as the top part is filtered, people may argue, but you want to draw positive pressure into the case, ive seen too many dusty insides in the builds and some wonder whats the reason for the build up...

    Do consider Saithes' post. It's very very possible Shroudster is at the end of the safe voltage limits. He could be on the edge of outright killing the cards if he tries anything more.

    If they are hardcapped, that probably still means 1.212 is still a "safe" voltage for the cards. Otherwise Nvidia would have put that voltage lower.

    But hes changing them mostly because of the waterblocks.
